ExperienceHello! Having taught for over 15 years at the college level, I am committed to helping students like you improve their reading and writing skills. I enjoy working with all kinds of students no matter the age, nationality, or background. I use tried and true methods to help writers become more comfortable and adept at inventing ideas, composing outlines, brainstorming, and organizing excellent papers. I have a sharp eye for detail and a deep sense of what sounds good/right linguistically. My students also really love the helpful handouts I create to improve their organizations skills. No matter whether your needs revolve around grammar or style or research skills, be assured I can help you with all of that and more! I'm a really easygoing and friendly person. I appreciate bringing a sense of humor to students who feel that writing papers is an apocalyptic experience.
